it was a joke told by a man in a position of power. personally i thought it was funny. when my daughter reached dating age, i used to tell people if the guys don't act right, i would get a shotgun. only in jest. just a little parent protection humor. if i had drones, i would have used that line. just jokes folks.

I don't get it. In what way was that offensive?

i agree with fatfilly. Can't people take a joke?

I think that vote is either pro-Jonas brothers or purely anti-President Obama.

it was not his best joke of the night, but the joke was better than what he actually felt as a father! I have daughters, who i trust, but I will crush somebody with all the might i have to protect them. Bare hands, brick, bat, shot gun, etc. if Pres Obama said the real father comment prissy Americans and the sensationalized media would think he's s serial killer.

I didn't hear the joke. But no matter what it was, it will never equal the Joke Hussein's parents pulled upon the World the day he was born. But , come to think of it, that wasn't funny, just tragic.

i don't think it was funny.

why would the jonas brothers ever want to date these ugly little heintz 57 mutts when they could have any pure breed they want?
